Mixed media assemblage sculptor, Michelle Lamb, often describes her work as “industrial baroque” because of the juxtaposition of using deconstructed obsolete machinery and common found objects in an ornately detailed manner. In point, her intriguing updated twist on the mannerism art movement preceding baroque art, Lamb embraces a similar artificiality, elegance and hyper stylization of her narratives.

Atypical of assemblage art however, Lamb rarely uses found objects as is and prefers to hide their original purpose via machining, patinas or deconstruction. She instead highlights their stylistic design or shape providing a high level of pareidolia, a phenomenon where viewers have a tendency to perceive specific, often meaningful images from random or ambiguous patterns.
